I’m back with another not so good review of a product that I was sure I would love. As I mentioned in my last post, I bought a bunch of stuff from Ulta and Sephora a few weeks ago and this particular product was at the top of my “Must Have” list. Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops are available in 6 shades, I bought the shade “Sunlight”. These drops are supposed to add a highlighting or bronzing effect to your look. The drops can be used alone, mixed in with any liquid like your foundation, primer or moisturizer, or added on top of powder foundation.
I tried using this with no makeup, mixed in with my primers and liquid foundations but the result was always the same. It just caked up and looked flaky. It literally just sat on top of my skin and made my face look as if it were extremely dry and peeling, which wasn’t the case. It looked awful! Every time I used it I had to immediately wash my face because it completely ruined my makeup. When I used the drops without makeup, it seemed as if it was going to have a smooth application but after a few minutes I noticed that it wasn’t blending in or being absorbed into my skin, it just created a flaky layer of crust on my face. It’s a pretty lightweight liquid that looks thicker than it actually is.
This stuff is $42 which I didn’t mind at all because I had such high expectations but, that is sort of a high price for a sun-kissed glow, especially when there are less expensive products that do the same thing. I thought this was going to end up being one of my favorite products. I really wanted to love it, especially since I do love the Cover FX Illuminating Primer. I was extremely disappointed, just another product that I have to return. Oh well, hit or miss….that’s how it goes when trying new products. If you’ve tried these custom enhancer drops, let me know what you think! Did they work for you?
